Pastel Portrait Drawing

Release your creativity and learn the essential techniques to creating a portrait using the medium of pastel drawing. By the end of the course you will have a finished piece to take home.

Using a picture or an enlarged photo, of a person of your choice, you will study the construction and form of the head, and cover techniques such as quality of line, shape, negative space, light, shade and form.

As a result you will learn how to represent form through tonal value and colour, and learn how to achieve the correct proportions of facial features to the size of the face.

You will have gained confidence in your ability to capture a person’s likeness into portrait form, having developed a drawing from initial blocking-in to a finished piece, and you will take home your completed artwork.
